What is Unemployment Insurance

Generally speaking all the Federal-State Unemployment Insurance Program provide a variety of  unemployment benefits to eligible workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own (as determined under State law), and meet other eligibility criteria as defined by law in each State.

  1. Unemployment insurance compensation (benefits) is intended to provide stop gap financial support for unemployed workers who meet all the requirements of each State law.
  2. Each State has a separate unemployment insurance program and the guidelines for the administration of the agency in each state is different but within the guidelines established by Federal law.
  3. Eligibility for unemployment insurance, benefit amounts and the length of time benefits are available are determined by the State law under which unemployment insurance claims are established.
  4. In the majority of States, the money for benefit funding is derived mainly or solely on a tax imposed on employers. (About three (3) States require minimal employee contributions.)
